Item details

This is a Cissus cactiformis . This African succulent is a member of the grape family and will grow a tiny cluster of grapes. It will put off tendrils and will climb if you give it something to climb on.
It is nick-named the cucumber cactus.

This is a representative photo of the plant you will receive. You will get multiple rooted stems.
I included photo of the mother plant as the last photo.
The stems will grow very long and are great for a hanging basket.

This Cissus is in a 4" plastic pot. All of our plants are shipped bare root (carefully wrapped with no soil). We have a care sheet to give you tips on caring for succulents - contact me for a copy.

Feel free to repot it in one of your own pots, but do not use a pot much larger than 4" diameter. If you put a succulent in a pot that is too large, the soil will take too long to dry since there are not enough roots to absorb the water and your plant may get root rot.


What is the difference between an cactus and a succulent?
All cacti are succulents, but not all succulents are cacti.
Succulents are plants that store water in their stem, leaves or root system.
A true cactus has a structure called an areole. It looks like a patch of cotton from which spines, flowers, branches and roots grow. While some succulents may have spines, they will not have areoles.

Average review
Beautiful, healthy plants; strong root systems, well packaged and fast service. Ordered four plants in two orders and they combined seamlessly. I shall return.
